The East Passyunk Crossing Civic Organization, which manages zoning for EPX and sponsors neighborhood cleanups and other good neighborly things, is auctioning off sweet Philly food experiences. Now through Sunday, March 1st you can bid your heart out (and outbid everyone else’s hearts out) for a good cause.
Some of the cooler auction items include a bread making class followed by a private dinner for 8 at Noord; a pasta making lesson from Lynn Rinaldi (of Paradiso); designing and naming your own sandwich at American Sardine Bar (we are particularly partial to this idea); and an ice cream making experience at Little Baby’s.

If 15 days of Center City Restaurant Week weren’t enough, you’re in luck: the third annual East Passyunk Restaurant Week is happening, Sunday February 22nd to Saturday February 28th.
28 restaurants have agreed to participate in East Passyunk’s Restaurant Week. Each meal will be 3-courses and priced at $15, $25 or$35. Even if you forget to make your reservations early, following #EPRW on twitter ensures that you’ll hear about last minute cancellations so you can swoop in.
Several restaurants from the Philadelphia magazine's 50 Best Restaurants are participating, including Fond, Noord, Townsend, Stateside, Will and Le Vitrtu. Newcomers Brigantessa, Bing Bing Dim Sum and P'unk Burger will be participating as well.
